Prepare to vomit. The Montgomery Advertiser reports:
Gov. Robert Bentley’s office said Wednesday the governor interviewed four candidates this week to replace U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions, including suspended Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore. In addition to Moore, Bentley interviewed U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Huntsville; Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh, R-Anniston and Republican Sens. Arthur Orr of Decatur and Cam Ward of Alabaster.
Kayla Moore, the chief justice’s wife, confirmed the interview in an email, saying it took place Tuesday. “He would consider it an honor if appointed to the office of U. S. Senate,” she wrote. President-elect Donald Trump will nominate Sessions for attorney general when he begins his term next month. Bentley will appoint Sessions’ successor and schedule a special election for the seat following the appointment.
Yasamie August, a spokeswoman for Bentley, said in an email Wednesday that Moore – suspended in September over an order telling probate judges they had a “ministerial duty” not to issue same-sex marriage licenses – was “one of the top picks” in a survey sent to more than 400 members of the Alabama Republican Executive Committee last month.
You’ll recall that earlier this year “sanctity of marriage” champion Bentley was exposed for having made highly sexual phone calls to his female assistant, who is less than half his age. That revelation was made several months after Bentley’s wife of 50 years filed for divorce on the grounds of adultery. Bentley later declared that God has forgiven him for the pornographic phone calls. And by the way, he was sworn into office by Roy Moore.
